    I'm loving the layout of your resume. Mind if I use it too or a reasonable facsimile? LOL

  • Susan Frechette

    This is so SMART.

    Rachel--as a Boomer I find this hard to locate the one thing that I want, your resume. All the rest is nice, but distracting until I have you resume, and your contact information. While I agree that this is very "smart" it's not useful for the manager who still has only 1-2 minutes to decide to keep someone in the hiring process. On the flip side, since I only care about hiring a PhD with a CPA right now, if I were looking for creative use of information in social media, you'd stay on the list...once I found the resume. The other thing that is so frustrating about social media as a channel is that there are so many outlets. How does one on the job market choose? Anyhow, I digress. I do like your site overall. Thank you for sharing.

    Hi @Linda Rodriguez. Thanks for the feedback! This isn't meant to be a resume specifically, it's more of a portfolio or bookmarking of everything worth knowing about me (were someone interested) around the interwebs. My website is listed in my profile, which has all my contact information as well as a link to my LinkedIn profile, which houses both my work experience and a PDF of my resume as well. This Pinterest board is more of a collection of my work, and I would assume a recruiter would go to my website or LinkedIn profile to find my resume/contact info.

  • Karen Paxton

    Rachael, as a recruiter I would be asking you to focus you CV/resume on your achievements, not listing what the job requires you to do. As I often say to my public affairs candidates: 50 people in the same job will all have exactly the same duties. Don't waste precious space in your CV describing the role/s. Just give an outline of what you do -enough to show the reader if you are junior, middle or senior management. The rest of the CV - and the only thing that will separate the 50 people - are the outcomes they produced/achieved (ie their achievements). 50 different peopl will achieve vastly different outcomes given the same challenge and resources. That is what sets you apart from others. If you just list duties with no indication of how well you perform them, you might as well just staple all your job descriptions together. Employers want to know how well you perform a role and how productive you are as an employee and your specific, tangible and measured outcomes do that. Hope that helps explain why some people get interviews from their CVs and others don't.
